Sept. 14 - Dec. 7 - Fall Session
Workshops will be held in the Gender Institute, 207 UB Commons, North Campus.

Meeting once per week each Monday, these writing workshops aim to provide a structure and incentive for Ph.D. students who are writing dissertations on topics related to women and/or gender to make steady, demonstrable progress by meeting every week to write, to discuss their work, and to report on their progress.

For each workshop, we will write for two hours from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., followed by a discussion and lunch period (light lunch will be provided by the Gender Institute). Participation is free and open to writers from any discipline across all UB campuses. As space is limited, registration is required.
